Atlantic Christian College 


Wilson, the seat of Atlantic Christian College, is ideally 
located for a college town. The main lines of two railway 
systems pass through it. The Atlantic Coast Line, running 
north and south, makes splendid connection with all the 
branches of that system. The Norfolk and Southern, running 
east and west, makes easy access possible from these directions. 
There are also paved highways from Wilson to every part of 
the state. 

Wilson is a beautiful city of 12,000 population, with elec- 
tric lights, filtered water, successful sewerage system, and 
good health record. It is the center of a prosperous farming 
section. Its churches, representing the leading denomina- 
tions, have handsome edifices of worship and are in a flourish- 
ing condition. 

In such a center of religious, political and business influ- 
ence our students come in contact with some of the greatest 
preachers, doctors, lawyers and business men of the State, and 
such opportunities are not to be undervalued. 

Historical Sketch 

The fifty-seventh North Carolina Christian Missionary 
Convention met at Kinston. N. C, October 30 to November 2, 
1901. The Committee on Education, consisting of D. W. 
Davis, B. H. Melton, W. J. Crumpler, E. A. Moye, and Dr. 
H. D. Harper, made a favorable report for the purchase of 
Kinsey Seminary, in Wilson, N. C, from the Wilson Edu- 
cational Association. According to the report of this com- 
mittee, which was duly adopted, the Board of Managers of 
the N. C. C. M. C. were to act as agents of the Convention in 
acquiring this college property, and were to appoint four 
trustees to have immediate supervision of the college. The 

8 Atlantic Christian College 

institution was named Atlantic Christian College and incor- 
porated May 1, 1902. Mr. George Hackney, of Wilson, N. C, 
was made treasurer of the College, and about $4,000 was con- 
tributed the first year. The building was taxed to its utmost 
capacity with students at the college opening in September, 
1902. The college property was bonded for the original in- 
debtedness of about $11,000 in 1902, which was fully paid in 
1911. The payment of this debt made accessible the "W. N. 
and Orpah Hackney Memorial Fund," which was be- 
queathed "for the education of worthy young men and 
women," and which consisted of real estate in Wilson to the 
value of about $3,000. In 1911 there was built a modern 
brick dormitory for men, on the campus, at an expense of 
about $15,000. In 1914 there was acquired a 672-acre farm 
in Onslow County, two miles south of Jacksonville, N. C. 
The Carolina Enlargement Campaign in the summer of 1920 
yielded the college for endowment in cash and good pledges. 
$156,677.70. The College was recognized as a standard 
A-grade College in May, 1922, by the North Carolina State 
Board of Public Instruction. 

Late in 1925 the Board of Trustees inaugurated a cam- 
paign for $400,000 for buildings and endowment. The city 
of Wilson subscribed $100,000 and $315,000 has been sub- 
scribed among the Christian churches in North Carolina. The 
complete sum has thus been subscribed and the active program 
of enlargement is under way. A new site of 40 acres has been 
purchased one-half mile from Wilson and a construction pro- 
gram will go forward as rapidly as possible. 

The following have presided over the institution : J. C. 
Coggins, 1902-1904; J. J. Harper, 1904-1908; J. C. Caldwell, 
1908-1916; R. A. Smith, 1916-1920; H. S. Hilley, 1920—. 

Aim of the College 

It is the aim of the college to develop character through 
Christian education, to combine with the development of the 
intellectual faculties a growing spiritual insight, to inspire to 

Courses of Instruction 9 

active service in every righteous cause, and thus to have a part 
in contributing to the world efficient Christian citizenship and 

Grounds and Buildings 

The college is located in a quiet section in the northern 
part of Wilson. The present campus occupies a large city 
block of about six acres. The two main buildings are sub- 
stantial brick structures, heated by steam and lighted by elec- 
tricity. Modern plumbing and adequate bath facilities con- 
tribute to health and comfort. The furnishings will compare 
favorably with similar institutions. 

On the new campus buildings modern in every respect will 
be erected adequate to take care of a larger student body than 
can be housed in the old buildings. The plans of the architect 
and the Board of Trustees contemplate the using of the new 
plant by January 1, 1929. Arrangements will be made to care 
for all students accepted in the old buildings until the new 
plant is ready to be occupied. 

A small athletic field with tennis and basketball courts fur- 
nishes opportunity for recreation and sport in the open air 
which in this climate is possible almost every day in the year. 

Co-educational Policy 

The institution is co-educational. The supervision is so 
close and vital, however, that we feel all objectionable features 
have been practically eliminated. 

In the dormitory for young women the lady teachers and 
students reside on the same floor. The oversight and care is 
substantially as exclusive as in institutions for women only. 

The young men have their own dormitory. Several men of 
the faculty reside in the boys' dormitory. Thus we endeavor 
to secure such results by close supervision and care as will 
beget the best in study and in character training. 

Religious Culture 

Frequently young people going from home to college ad- 
vance mentally, but retrograde morally. We endeavor to 

10 Atlantic Christian College 

make this impossible at Atlantic Christian College. We care 
for character as well as intellect. We keep our students in a 
good moral atmosphere, throwing about them proper re- 
straints and safeguards, and giving them counsel. 

Every morning the students and professors assemble in the 
college auditorium for chapel exercises. The services are con- 
ducted by members of the faculty and visiting ministers of 
the Gospel. Brief addresses and lectures are given on religion, 
morals, good manners, temperance, the choosing of professions 
and vocations in life, etc. Visitors are always welcome. 

Students are required to attend Sunday School and church 
service at some church each Lord's Day. 

The religious interests and welfare of the students are fos- 
tered by a standing committee on Religious Education. 

Under the direction of this committee the organized re- 
ligious life of the students centers in these groups — the 
Fellowship, an organization of ministerial and missionary stu- 
dents, the Young Men's Christian Association and the Young 
Women's Christian Association. All these groups meet 
weekly and add much to the religious and devotional life of 
college. They have been active in increasing spiritual fervor 
in the individual, in improving college morale, and in keeping 
the students in touch with wider interest of world affairs 
outside the college community. 

Literary Societies 

There are two Literary Societies : the Alethian and Hesper- 
ian. These organizations are very active and hold their meet- 
ings on Monday evening of each week. 

Clubs and Societies 

There are among the students various social clubs and also 
certain societies to promote different interests. Students in 
Expression maintain a Dramatic Club, which has social meet- 
ings and which presents plays from time to time. 

The Education Club is composed of students who expect to 
teach and strives to foster higher ideals of that profession 
among its members. 

Courses of Instruction 11 

The Scribblers Club fosters the expression of literary 
talent by regular meetings for discussion and criticism and by 
articles in the student publications. 

The College Glee Club and the Ensemble Club are organ- 
izations of students in the Department of Music. The object 
of the Ensemble Club is to increase the appreciation of music 
both among its members and the entire student body. Stu- 
dents majoring in music are active members and members of 
other musical organizations are associate members. Monthly 
programs are rendered by the club. 

Prizes and Awards 

Excellence in certain lines of college activity is recognized 
by the awarding of prizes each year. The Faculty loving cup 
is awarded to the student who has the best general record in 
college, the Rotary cup to the best student, and the Kiwanis 
cup to the best athlete. The Williams cup is presented to the 
society winning the annual inter-society debate. The Organ- 
ization Scholarship Cup donated in 1927 by the Sigma Alpha 
Fraternity, is awarded annually to the organization whose 
members have made the highest scholastic average during the 
year, and the Denny cup to the society presenting the best 
programs throughout the year. 

These awards are made on Commencement Day. 


College sports, such as football, basketball, baseball and 
tennis are encouraged. Tennis and basketball courts are main- 
tained on the campus for both women and men, while League 
Park is available for intercollegiate sports. 

While athletics are generally cultivated by the student body 
and encouraged by the faculty, they have not become the chief 
factor of our student life. Eligibility to represent the college 
is governed by the constitutional requirements of the North 
Carolina Inter-collegiate Athletic Association, of which the 
school is a member. 

12 Atlantic Christian College 

The general direction of athletics is committed to the Ath- 
letic Council, an organization in which the faculty, students 
and the alumni share the responsibility. 

Student Publications 

The Radiant 

But few publications of the kind excel The Radiant, issued 
quarterly by the students of the college. Through its columns 
opportunity is offered for genuine literary culture. It is also 
a powerful means for the engendering and expression of a 
healthy and clean college spirit. Through it every student 
who has something to say and can worthily say it finds avenue 
for his contention or sentiment. 

The staff is elected from the student body and alumni 
under the general direction of the Committee on Publications. 

The Pine Knot 

The Pine Knot, the College Annual, represents our best 
manhood and womanhood. It represents also the business 
energy, civic pride, and hearty liberality that has placed Wil- 
son among the best towns and cities of our Southland. With- 
out the generous support of the business men of Wilson this 
splendid publication could not be made. Without the hearty 
cooperation of our students and friends it could not exist. 

The Collegiate 

The Collegiate, the bi-weekly newspaper of the students, 
has been issued during the past two sessions. It affords an 
opportunity for an open discussion of the problems before the 
students ; as well as carrying the news of the student 's life to 
friends, patrons, and former students. 

The content and form of all student publications is subject 
to the approval of the faculty, which acts in this matter 
through its Committee on Publications. 

Courses of Instruction 13 

The Bulletin 

Through this publication the college makes announcements 
promptly, and prints news of general interest for its numer- 
ous friends, thus bringing the institution into a close touch 
with its constituency. It is issued each November, February, 
May, and July. 


"We have installed a library of over seven thousand 
volumes of well selected books, which have been carefully 
catalogued and indexed. In connection with this library is 
a reading room supplied with the leading magazines and 
periodicals. The librarian will be in constant attendance dur- 
ing open hours. 


The Biology Laboratory is located on the first floor of the 
main building and is equipped to meet every need arising in 
both elementary and advanced work. The equipment consists 
of simple and compound microscopes, and other apparatus for 
general Biology, Anatomy, Embryology, etc. 

The Chemistry laboratory occupies a large, well-lighted 
room on the first floor of the Boys' Dormitory. The equip- 
ment includes demonstration and individual apparatus for 
work in General Inorganic Chemistry, Qualitative and Quan- 
titative Analysis, and Organic Chemistry. 

Modern apparatus has recently been materially increased 
in both these laboratories and they now offer admirable facili- 
ties to pre-medical students and students majoring in either 
Chemistry or Biology. 

The laboratory for General Physics is adequately equipped 
for the course afforded. 

Reservation of Rooms 

The rooms previously occupied are reserved for former 
students until June the 15th. A deposit of five dollars is 
required for the reservation of the room after that date. This 
will be credited on first quarter's expenses, or, if notice is 

14 Atlantic Christian College 

given in writing three weeks before the opening of the school 
that the student cannot attend, the money will be refunded. 
Beginning July 1 room assignments will be made to new stu- 
dents in the order in which their applications have been 
received. No room can be claimed unless the deposit has been 

What Boarding Pupils and Teachers are Required to Furnish 

One pair of blankets or comforts, quilts, sheets, white bed- 
spreads, one pillow, two pillow-cases, towels and table nap- 
kins, soap, laundry bags, and toilet articles. Each young lady 
is required to have in addition both a raincoat and an um- 
brella. All articles should be marked distinctly with the 
owner's name. Each student should bring knife, fork and 
spoon, as table cutlery cannot be sent to rooms. All beds in 
Boys ' Dormitory are single, while there are in girls ' dormitory 
both single and double beds. An effort will be made to meet 
wishes of students in supplying either single or double beds. 
We advise those who desire to make their rooms cosy and 
attractive to bring rugs, sofa pillows and pictures. 

Disciplinary Policy 

It is the aim of the institution to have members of the 
faculty to reside in the buildings with the students. This 
affords the best possible opportunity for that personal contact 
and care for which the institution stands. The splendid op- 
portunities now afforded by our schools are preparing pupils 
for college at too immature an age for them to be free from 
all restraining influence. By a resolution of the Board of 
Trustees, hazing in any form is forbidden. The penalty for 
hazing is expulsion. 


Admission of Students 

Every applicant for admission to the college must be of 

good character. Only those should apply for admission who 

are in sympathy with the aims of the college, who purpose to 

do serious work, and who are willing to cooperate with the 

Courses of Instruction 15 

administration in building up worthy school traditions. Stu- 
dents whose general attitude tends to lower the ideals and 
break down the morale of the school or whose work is dis- 
tinctly unsatisfactory will be asked to withdraw. 


All students when arriving at the college should report at 
once to the college office and matriculate, and be assigned to 
specific rooms and classes. 

Matriculation obligates all pupils to conduct themselves 
with propriety on all occasions, and to conform to all rules 
that may be made for their government. 

A fee of ten ($10) dollars is charged all full-time literary 
students for matriculation, and is due and payable in full at 
the time the student is assigned to classes. This fee may be 
increased to $15 if matriculation is deferred beyond the time 
set apart especially for this work by the college. 


Students are required to keep their own rooms in order, 
and are held responsible for any damage to furniture or 

Meals will be sent to the rooms in case of sickness only, 
and then by order of the matron of the dormitory. 

Students residing in the girls' dormitory will not leave the

in 1927. This fund makes available every year to a worthy 
graduate of the Wilson High School an amount sufficient to 
pay his tuition at the College for one year. The committee 
to select the scholar each year is to be composed of the Super- 
intendent of Schools, the Principal of the High School, one 
high school teacher appointed by the Principal and the 
President of the College. 

The money is to be granted in the form of a loan and 
the money loaned is to be repaid into the fund with interest

The College 


The purpose of the college is to furnish instruction of 
standard grade to those desiring a liberal education. Only 
such courses are offered as our equipment will justify. The

them on the basis of any standard college, and is prepared in 
faculty, and in laboratory and library facilities to meet the 
requirements for an A-grade college as approved by the State 
Board of Education. 

Students are admitted to the Freshman class either by cer- 
tificate from accredited high schools or by examination. Those 
eligible to be admitted on certificate should send to the college

cipal of the school they are attending. These certificates 
should be presented on or before the day of registration. 
Students from non-accredited high schools should present 
themselves for examination at the college at 8 a.m., Saturday, 
September 8, 1928.

Any student who has maintained a good moral character 
during his course of study, and passed satisfactory examina- 
tion in his work, and has paid his bills, is entitled to graduate. 
Appropriate diplomas and certificates will be conferred at the 
commencement exercises of the college. Only one baccalaure- 
ate degree is conferred by the college — the Degree of Bachelor 
of Arts.

Requirements for Degree of Bachelor of Arts 

The " semester hour" is the standard for computing the 
amount of work required for this degree. The "hour" repre- 
sents the amount of work done in one semester (eighteen 
weeks) in one recitation hour with two preparation hours. No 
student is permitted to register for less than fourteen hours 
or more than seventeen hours of work in any one semester, 
except by special consent of the faculty on advice of the Dean. 
A baccalaureate degree in the college is conferred on any stu- 
dent who satisfies all entrance requirements and secures credit 
for one hundred twenty hours of academic work with an equal 
number of quality credits, and four hours (two periods per 
week for two years) of physical training. 

Quality of Work 

The following qualitative standard has been adopted : 
I. Quality Value of Grades. 

A -\- gives 5 quality credits for one semester hour 
A gives 4 " " " " " " 

B -\- gives 3 quality credits for one semester hour 
B gives 2 " " " " " " 

C + gives 1 " " " " " " 

C secures none.

not less than C -f- must be maintained throughout the 
four years. In addition to this, the student must have 
an average of B in his major subject. 

III. Quality Credits for Extra-curricular Activities. 

1. Two quality credits will be given for superior 
work in any one such types of student activities as ora- 
torical contests, forensics, dramatics, music, responsible 
positions on editorial staff, leadership in religious work, 
basketball, football, baseball, track athletics; but no stu- 
dents will be given more than six such quality credits in 
any one year. 

2. No student will be permitted to engage in any one 
of the above extra-curricular activities whose work is 

IV. Graduating Honors. 

Graduating honors will be based on quality credits as : 
cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude. 

Cum laude will be granted for 360 to 480 quality 
credits, three to four quality credits per semester hour). 

Magna cum laude, for 480 to 540 quality credits (four 
to four and one-half quality credits per semester hour). 

Summa cum laude for 540 to 600 quality credits (four 
and one-half to five quality credits per semester hour). 

V. Amount of Work Limited by the Quality of "Work. 

1. No student shall be permitted to take more than 
15 semester hours if his average grade for the previous 
year has been below B ; nor more than 16 semester hours 
if his average grade for the previous year has been below 
B -j- ; nor more than 17 semester hours if his average for 
the previous year has been below A. 

2. No student shall be permitted to take more than 15 
semester hours the second semester of the year if his aver- 
age grade for the previous semester has been below C -j- ,

the end of the Sophomore year no quality credit for the 
course shall be allowed : Mathematics 5-6, English 5-6, 
History 5-6 or 25-26, Biology 5-6, Chemistry 5-6, French 
5-6, or Spanish 5-6, Bible 5-6 or 25-26.

indicates incomplete work. Grades I and D -j- must be 
removed in the first thirty days of the next semester of 
attendance. To remove a condition only one examination 
is allowed. If the student fails in this examination, his 
work shall be marked D and counted a failure. Work

Special Regulations 

Students residing in Wilson who are not prepared to take 
college work may take course in Music without credit. Pupils 
may enter at any time, but in no case for a shorter period 
than the unexpired portion of the quarter. No allowance is 
made for the lessons missed except in case of protracted ill- 
ness. Lessons missed through a briefer illness will be made 
up at the convenience of the teacher in charge. All lost lessons 
must be made up by the close of the semester. 


Ensemble playing is of inestimable value to the student 
who wishes to become a proficient accompanist, for as he culti- 
vates self-control, smoothness of rhythm and proficiency in 
sight reading, his general musicianship improves. The stu- 
dent becomes familiar with many of the standard master- 
pieces, for a wide range of literature is studied. 


Students sufficiently advanced are required to play at the 
Student Recitals. All students of the School of Music are 
required to attend. This is one of the most important factors 
in the development of the pupil's talent, self-confidence and 
executive ability. The recitals are regularly attended by the 
faculty and students of the college and their friends. 


Pupils in piano will receive practice in ensemble playing 
one hour a week, free of charge. 

Courses of Instruction 31 

Students in voice will receive practice in sight-singing one 
hour a week free of charge. 

Courses in Freshman History of Music, Appreciation of 
Music, Sight-singing and Ear -training are free of charge. 

All students of music have free access to the college library. 

The matriculation fee is not charged to town students 
who enroll for private lessons in Piano or Voice. 

Students of Voice Culture will be provided an accom- 
panist for a small additional fee. 

Memory tests and Listening lessons free to students in 
Piano, Voice and Public School Music — one hour per week. 
The best voices of the entire college are admitted to the chorus 
free of charge.

teachers, but in no case will credit be given toward an A.B. 
degree until the student passes satisfactorily the required 
examination in the theoretical courses, if such work has not 
been successfully pursued. 

32 Atlantic Christian College 

Requirements for Diploma in Expression 

The aim of this department is culture in speech and the 
natural, expressive and adequate vocal interpretation of litera- 
ture. Candidates for graduation must complete the four years 
of prescribed work offered in Expression, and 60 hours of 
college work, twenty-four hours of which must be in English. 

Experience has taught that more effective work and greater 
progress is made in class work, and in accordance with this 
view all instruction in the various subjects of this department 
will be done in classes with the exception of one private lesson 
each week to each student. 

The work to be taken in college course will be decided upon 
by the teacher of expression, subject to the approval of the 
Dean of the college.

Physical Education 

This department is organized to supply the opportunity 
for such physical work as experience has shown to be neces- 
sary to counteract the injurious effect of close application to 
mental work and to favor the attainment by the student body 
of a high state of physical efficiency. Special exercises are 
assigned to correct deficiencies and weaknesses. A thorough 
physical examination prefaces the work of each individual. 
Every student is required to take physical training. 

Twice a week. Two years required for graduation.
